Lions, Camels, Turtles, and Monkeys, Oh My!

We had our leadership coach, Hardin Byers, from Heartland Leadership Group come in and lead us in a session around communication, teams and engagement.

I hope as you read this and wind down 2013 you are able to see not only those items you didn’t check off your goal list but those that you did. There are very few people that I meet who shouldn’t consider themselves blessed for what they achieved. They just need to take the time to see it. I also hope you are taking these last moments of the year to prepare for the next. Preparation before Execution is one of our core values and I can tell you that personally I haven’t always done it but I know that when you do your chances of succeeding in the effort increase exponentially.

As many of you know, two of my favorite quotes are “The only thing inevitable is change” and “If you don’t like change, you should learn to love irrelevance”. I’m not sure who I first heard say them, but I use them to remind myself and my team that we have to be aware, flexible and prepared.

There is a new virus out there that is making its rounds and it is one the most severe viruses we’ve seen. Within the last couple of weeks news has been spreading about a virus known as Cryptolocker. Cryptolocker is a virus that is commonly referred to as ransomware. Ransomware is when a piece of malicious software takes over your computer and prevents you from doing anything except booting up. It gives you an ultimatum to pay the people behind it or lose all your data. This type of virus/malware is becoming increasingly popular among criminals and illegal organizations.
